Tourism is one of the largest industries in the world, with millions of tourists traveling around the globe every month for personal or business reasons, and the number is increasing almost daily.
Of course, the biggest beneficiaries of tourism are hotels that host millions of tourists, so more and more hotels are popping up every day – from luxury and ultra-luxury hotels to budget hotels and guest houses. But the latest buzzword seems to be boutique hotels. Many tourists now prefer to stay in so-called boutique hotels.
So, what is a boutique hotel? Why is it popular with tourists no matter where in the world you visit?
The concept of boutique hotel originated in North America, which is intended to create a warm and luxurious hotel environment. What distinguishes boutique hotels from other mainstream hotels is personal service – providing individualized accommodations and facilities for each guest. All boutique hotels are usually created around a theme that runs through all of the hotel’s rooms and service centers. Generally, boutique hotels are considered more stylish than their competitors, as most of them usually employ the services of professional interior designers to develop and execute a unique theme for the hotel.
All hotel rooms, restaurants, lounges, etc. are carefully planned and built according to the designer’s vision.
In addition to a fine balance of style and luxury, a typical room in a boutique hotel features at least one queen-size bed, telephone connection, Wi-Fi internet connection which is usually free for hotel guests, cable TV, minibar and 24/7 room service . Most boutique hotels will also have a great restaurant serving a variety of cuisines and have a lounge or bar on the premises where guests can rest and relax and mingle with other guests. Generally, lounges or bars are also open to the public.
Boutique hotels are generally smaller than mainstream luxury hotels, with larger boutique hotels having a maximum of about a hundred rooms, while smaller boutique hotels may have as few as five rooms.
Generally speaking, the majority of visitors to boutique hotels are business travelers, which ensures repeat customers for the hotel. But recent trends have shown that a large number of regular tourists prefer to stay in these boutique hotels because of the perfect combination of luxury, privacy and personal service they offer their guests, which sets them apart from other hotels, be it luxury or luxury. Come on. A budget hotel.
The staff at these hotels are very friendly and courteous and are trained to meet all requests from guests. Although there may be fewer people working compared to the larger luxury hotel groups, even so, most guests report a greater sense of personal service, which is one of the main reasons why boutique hotels are starting to gain popularity for all types of guests , whether they are for vacation or business purposes.
